July 2020-racism and protests, COVID-19 resources, summer staycation, and alternate activities.

This July, the Autism Society of America is highlighting new ways for families impacted by autism to navigate summer activities during COVID-19, as well as education regarding the protests that have occurred since May 26 in response to racism, police brutality, and deaths of black individuals such as George Floyd. Our goal is to provide resources to help autistic individuals and families find new ways to participate in summer fun while staying safe, in addition to helping individuals impacted by autism understand new societal changes in conjunction with recent and ongoing American protests.

Below we have compiled a digital toolkit of resources, information, referrals, and support to help autistic individuals and their families navigate summer staycation, COVID-19, racial discrimination conversations and protesting this July.
